PRIME Minister David Cameron and players from Oxford United joined thousands across the county in a minute’s silence for the victims of the Tunisia massacre.

At noon yesterday the Witney MP observed the silence with medical staff, councillors and visitors at the newly-opened health centre on London Road in Chipping Norton.

Across the country people stopped to remember the 30 Britons killed by gunman Seifeddine Rezgui last Friday.

Afterwards Mr Cameron said: “It was nice to observe the silence in my constituency. It was the appropriate place.

“You could tell it was something everyone wanted to take part in and felt strongly about.

“Everyone was extremely shocked about what happened and it’s important that we come together to share this.”

Caroline Keenan, a GP at the recently-opened surgery, said: “It’s very fitting that he was in his own constituency to do the minute’s silence together with the staff here and the people of Chipping Norton.”

Chipping Norton Mayor Mike Tysoe, who was also at the ceremony, added: “It’s very sad that these people were killed in Tunisia and it’s appropriate that we should honour them and that the country decided we were going to have a minute’s silence.”

Oxford United players gathered in a circle on the pitch at their Roman Way training ground.

Head coach Michael Appleton said: “It was just a moment to pay our respects after the terrible events in Tunisia.”

Tourists and Tunisians gathered at the scene of the attack in Sousse. They linked arms to observe the silence.

A total of 30 Britons died after a lone gunman opened fire on a beach in the holiday resort.

The bodies of 25 victims have been flown back to RAF Brize Norton this week with five more due today.

They are being flown in by RAF personnel on C17 transport aircraft and were taken to a coroner’s office in Fulham.

Carterton mayor Lynn Little said: “I attended repatriation ceremonies at RAF Brize Norton on Tuesday and Wednesday and I will be there again tomorrow.

“They were dignified and done with the utmost care and I am very proud to have been part of that. I have offered condolences on behalf of the people of Carterton.”

City councillors and members of the church community and the public gathered to observe the minute’s silence at Oxford Town Hall in St Aldates.

The Rt Rev Colin Fletcher, Bishop of Oxford, spoke at the vigil where he was joined by Oxford Lord Mayor Rae Humberstone.

Elsewhere in Oxfordshire, Thames Valley Police flew the Union flag at half-mast at its Kidlington HQ as a mark of respect.
